It may seem like Mindy Kaling left 'The Office' at a crucial juncture heading into its ninth, and final season, but don't feel to bad for the current 'Mindy Project' star. Following only two episodes, FOX has decided to see exactly where the 'Project' is going by ordering additional episodes for its first season. The same goes for fellow Tuesday comedy 'Ben & Kate,' though with a different kind of renewal. Get the scoop on both shows and FOX's orders inside!
The Mindy Project
While it seems these days that more and more networks are deferring to the easy accessibility of a three-camera sitcom, we're happy to see that FOX is largely keeping the single-camera alive. Sure, that attitude would have been great a few years ago, so we didn't have to spent 7 years waiting for new 'Arrested Development,' but we digress.

Not one to be outdone by all of NBC's fancy new trailers and announcements at their Upfront presentation today, FOX has decided to get in on the game (on the heels of their big 'Glee' announcement) by releasing a first-look trailer at Mindy Kaling's upcoming sitcom, titled (for now) 'The Mindy Project.' But what 'The Office' and 'SNL' alum show their faces?
